CHELA 6-7 7-6 5-7 - MATCH - And right before another tie-break, the Uzbekistani pulls off the upset after three hours, 22 minutes and 13 seconds of tightly-contested tennis.

- 

CHELA 6-7 7-6 5-5 - One more chance for a match-winning break or else we're going right to the wire in this one. And there's still five other matches scheduled for Court 8!

CHELA 6-7 7-6 4-4 - BREAK - As I say that, Istomin responds with two in a row himself and the two are edging closer towards a third tie-break.

-

CHELA 6-7 7-6 2-4 - BREAK - We may finally have that daylight on Court 8 after three hours of action. Chela breaks Istomin's serve then holds his own for a two-game lead.
